DePuy Orthopaedics Accused of Deceiving Hip Replacement Patients
Date:10/11/2010

CLEVELAND, Oct. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The preeminent law office of Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy has filed a class action lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson's artificial joint replacement company DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., on behalf of clients who suffered damages resulting from the company's now-recalled hip replacement device.  (Case No. 1:10CV02222, U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio, Eastern Division)

Hip Replacement Patients Deceived about CostsThe claim states that DePuy required patients to release their confidential medical records to even be considered for reimbursement of medical costs. As a result, some patients may have been misled into believing DePuy had actually agr
